The DC Urban Gardeners (DUG) Network’s mission is to inform and connect DC residents to resources, events, opportunities, forums, services and programs that support food access, healthy eating, urban agriculture and environmental sustainability in the greater DC area.
At the DUG Network, we believe that connecting residents to local resources in DC is vital to creating a positive, lasting community within the growing urban agriculture, food access and environmental
Founded in 2015, DUG was created to provide an expansive and consolidated platform through which area residents and organizations can more easily connect to the programs, events, and resources currently available to the DC community.
DUG is a cooperative organization created to be sustainable over time. DUG was organized as a non-profit co-op to be a flexible, volunteer-led organization grounded in the community we serve. DUG is made up of volunteers who donate their time and resources to create, maintain, develop and share information with the DC community.
Who Are We?
Our volunteers are motivated and passionate urban gardening, food security and environmental enthusiasts, professionals and advocates from around the DC-Maryland-Virginia area, who design and manage the DUG Network’s website and activities.
